Marine Protected Areas

Would you like to help protect our seas and wildlife?

 

In 2013, SEA LIFE and the Marine Conservation Society campaigned for the creation of a network of Marine Protected Areas around the English coastline.

 

Three years later, we now have 50 new Marine Conservation Zones, special areas where habitat and wildlife can flourish, but sadly, not enough of our habitats and wildlife are currently protected from harm.

 

Next year the UK Government will be consulting on the last of the places around the English coast that will be considered for protection. There are 34 priority places around the English coast that we believe need protection and they are all important habitats that are home to many different species of wildlife, including species of seahorses, sharks, whales, seals, rays, and other marine life.

 

Together with the SEA LIFE Trust and the Marine Conservation Society we are looking for support for the protection of these 34 priority places. This is our last chance to make sure that as many of the special places we’d like to see protected as possible are included.
